Gay pets?

So my beloved kitten, Zoe, is growing up and I think she's discovering her feelings for women. She goes straight for the boobs of all of my female friends, anyway. And I am so proud of her. Haha just thought I'd mention.

Do you guys think that animals actually have a sexual orientation? Anybody have any gay pets?

Hi!

I've seen male monkeys do it with other male monkeys, and my male guinea pig I had years go once humped another male...

I believe that animals are by nature bisexuals... or at any rate "liberated" in their sexuality for their lack of oppressive societies...

Ok... you can call me weird now.

Hey its lauren. I always wondered the same thing? I think animals can be gay because my dog(boy) always humps on other guys legs. Also, my other two dogs (all boys) hump on each other all the time. Its funny, cause i always sit back and think"If i hear one of them scream, i know why"

From what I've heard, homosexual pair bonds have been seen in almost every species that mates for life. In particular, gay penguins (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2004/02/07/MNG3N4RAV41.DTL) have gotten a lot of publicity in the last few years. Also, many other species that don't mate for life exhibit homosexual behavior, such as bonobos, our close relatives after chimps. Bonobos are very promiscuous, and many don't seem to give a flip either way.

Bio nerd to the rescue!

Mmmm... not really gonna put an opinion forward as to if animals have a sexual orientation, and which animals in that case, cause I simply wouldn't know.

But I'll say this much - one must be careful not to mistake dominant behaviour for gay behaviour. In the case of animals like guinea pigs, rabbits, dogs etc. humping is actually a sign of dominance. So, to anyone who has a male dog that humps people's legs, you should teach your dog that it is unacceptable - because a male dog humping you or anyone else in your house is actually a sign that he is trying to take over. If a simple "no" or "down" doesn't work, try to get someone to bang something loud when the dog tries to hump someone, he should soon start to associate the unpleasant sound with his behaviour and should eventually stop. Make sure that once the dog learns to stop his action you reward him as soon as he does so, and NEVER ever hit or kick a dog. (Should be selfexplanatory, really). Right, I know that might have been spoiling everyone's party, but I know someone who let their dog carry on and ended up having real problems with him (he bit strangers coming into the house), so I thought if I could spare others the same situation it would be good. 

But, going back to the topic of if other animals have sexual orientation... my guess would be that most of them don't simply because they do not feel lust and love the way humans do. Scientifically, the animal that's closest to us when it comes to social interaction and feeling (and also the ONLY other animal which has sex for pleasure!) is the dolphin, so I guess that would be the safest animal to study for such behaviour...? But what do I know, I never did study to be a zoologist!

We have lesbian rabbits. We named them Bonnie and Clyde but Clyde is definately a girl. They are very loving and take turns being on top so I don't think it is a dominance thing. But I am not a zoologist either.

I don't know if my pitweiler is gay or not, but she absolutely hates male dogs. Other females are a-ok (which might explain why my cat hasn't been eaten by her yet, despite the cat taunting her like Foghorn Leghorn did to the hound in the cartoons). A few months back, I had brought in a stray that someone had dumped at a friend's house, but they couldn't keep it. I erroneously figured the dog would settle in. I mean, the dog would be living every male human's fantasy, two girls and him. Baby had other plans and ran him off in the blink of an eye. Then again, she also does that whenever any male strays into her yard.

I know it's dominance, but I still like to laugh about it.

My dog lets other dogs hump him all the time. He's huge, so sometimes he has to lay down to let them go at it. Girl dogs, boy dogs, he doesn't care.

He also gets this really strange big smile on his face when another dog is humping him.

Alas, not in my house. Owen is a beautiful, long-haired domestic cat who looks femme. I had hoped he might be gay as a kitten -- until I looked up from my book and saw him attempting to mount my other (thankfully spayed) cat Lucinda. He went to the vet the next day and now I guess you could say he is transgender. 

Lucinda has a thing for men, especially soft-spoken ones with guitars to seranade her. She also likes men because they usually are not vet techs and because they are more willing to wave the wand toy for her.

My retired racing greyhound, Yoda, is most definitely straight--I found this out when I took him to play with a friend's German mountain shepherd, who is gay (or maybe bi, I've never been around him with a female dog). Max tried to mount Yoda repeatedly, but Yoda was having none of it.
